Quality Bandsaw and Bandknife


Saw37C – the cutting edge of carbon steel bandsaw blades At Dakin-Flathers, we’ve not achieved the status of the largest carbon bandsaw manufacturer in the world by simply dedicating over 100 years to making blades. No, we’ve been refining and reinventing them constantly so that they outperform all other bandsaws in the market.

the grade. Every aspect of each Saw37C blade is under harsh scrutiny. Everything from tooth shape right through to microstructural analysis is inspected in great detail. Giving you the best possible bandsaw blades time after time. So how does Saw37C stand up to such rigorous testing? By creating every blade using industry leading state-of-theart machinery.

Take Saw It’s a collection of some of the most precise and durable bandsaws in the world, designed and manufactured using cutting edge techniques. Produced from superior Western European carbon-rich steel made exclusively for Dakin-Flathers. Using such unique raw steel, enables Saw37C teeth to cut with ruthless precision and to resist ‘blade fatigue’ for longer than other leading bandsaw blades. 37C.

Dakin-Flathers have invested over £10m in equipment, processes and research and development over the last 15 years. Such huge and continual investment in our 24-hour purpose-built facility means our highly skilled engineers work with technologically advanced manufacturing equipment to bring you the best bandsaw and bandknife blades in the world...Generation37.

Our quality control methods are equally ruthless, with stringent checks ensuring only absolute perfection making

Why Saw37C makes other blades look toothless, weak and tired... Unique Metallurgical Properties for Longer Life

That’s why the Saw37C range is a collection of the highest quality and performing blades found anywhere in the world.

Superior Carbon Steel

Want proof? We conducted “run-to-destruction” fatigue tests to expose any weaknesses in our blades. Compared to the other leading brands tested, Saw37C blades outperformed them all proving Dakin-Flathers is a cut above the rest.

Saw bandsaw blades are of the very highest quality in terms of manufacture and metallurgy. Each is created from a single precision high carbon steel strip with unique and unparalleled characteristics and metallurgical properties – developed exclusively for Dakin-Flathers. 37C

Fatigue Testing – Saw37C vs. the Competition

Units - Cycles to Failure

What difference does using such high-grade carbon steel make to a blade? The answer is a world of difference. Firstly, performance – every Saw37C bandsaw has superior cutting abilities, making easy work of whatever each specific blade in the range is designed to tackle, leaving a precise, clean cut. Secondly, the carbides in every Saw37C blade are finely and evenly dispersed during our heat treatment process resulting in teeth that are tougher and harder. That means dramatically improved wear and fatigue resistance resulting in noticeably longer blade life.


Reduced Waste with Accurate Precision Cutting Uniform CNC Teeth Setting For a blade to cut at maximum efficiency and accuracy, its teeth must be set with precise levels of uniformity. The slightest variation in the set of any one tooth can have a dramatic negative impact creating wider, erratic rough cuts, more waste and a compromised overall finish. Amongst many things, one key differentiator between Dakin-Flathers blades and other leading, yet inferior blades is our unrivalled accuracy of set consistency.

Set Consistency – Saw37C vs. the Competition

The facts speak for themselves. By comparing the standard set deviation from the specification of the Saw37C range with three other leading brand blades, you can see from the graph to the left that we achieve 99.5% accuracy of perfectly aligned teeth. Meaning cleaner, more accurate cuts from every Dakin-Flathers Saw37C bandsaw blade.

Saw37C has Every Job Covered One Extensive Range Cuts All Saw37C isn’t a one-off single blade, it’s an entire range that brings all these unique and valuable benefits to a huge number of your production processes.

Our unique process guarantees the optimum degree of set on every Saw37C blade. We can promise this as every blade passes through our rigorous quality checks at every step of the manufacturing process. This culminates in a range of bandsaw blades that straight out of the box cut straighter, harder and faster.

Specialist applications such as furniture production where high feed rates and output is crucial are covered with our thicker gauge 'Furnisaw' range. Incorporating not only thicker material but a variety of different options for tooth configurations and set patterns to maximize performance and productivity. A unique thin gauge material is also available for smaller machines with tighter wheel radii to help eliminate premature breakage.
